If you have not been to Miss Spenser's English Tearoom you should put it to the top of your list of tearooms to visit in Iowa. The Hardin family truly welcomes you into their home. The decor of the tearoom is lovely. It reminds me of elegant parlors of the past. The Dicken's sweet potato pear bisque was absolutely delicious. Other foods were served on three tiered trays. The festive mint brownie bites melted in my mouth. There was not a morsel left on our trays. Our teacups were always filled with fragrant tea. Miss Spenser helped serve, but then transformed herself into Mrs. Cratchit. Miss Spenser, speaking with her English accent, was a very convincing Mrs. Cratchit. I have been to other tearooms, but Miss Spenser's English Tearoom remains my favorite one!!
